        Essai sur les moyens de régénérer l'agriculture en France et plus particulièrement les départements du Midi

      chez Antoine Richard 1820-21, Marseilles - 3 vols. pages; Three volumes bound in contemporary half calf over marbled paper-covered boards with tiny vellum tips reinforcing the corners, flat spines -- each volume has a pair of green leather labels lettered in gilt. These three volumes once belonged to Dr. Arpad Plesch, with the great collector's impressive red leather book-label tooled and lettered in gilt mounted to the front paste-down of the first volume. The spine of the first volume has a small piece missing along the top edge and has recieved a minor repair, there is a surface scrape along the spine of the third volume, which is not particularly noticeable, and there is moderate worming to the blank margins (only) of 57 leaves towards the end of the volume. In general, this copy is handsome and sound. While these volumes would be of considerable interest as a representation of the state of agriculture in the south of France in 1820, the material at the heart of the third volume represents an important and early treatise on all aspects of the variety and cultivation of grapes, and winemaking. The text goes into significant detail -- how to build, support and work vineyards, the varieties of grapes and their suitability to the terrain and climate, diseases and problems ith grapes, wine bottles, corks, basements, cellars, tanks, vinegars, distillation and fortification, etc. Little is known about the author, J.-S. Lardier, but at least one reference relates that he was born in 1753 and that he was Provençal. Lardier's "Essai," while a classic work of French agriculture (and viticulture), is both rare and unusual in its form -- to the extent that various sources cannot agree, even, on just what constitutes a set. The Bibliothèque Nationale copy seems to have only the first two volumes [but as it does not specify pagination details, their catalogue description makes it impossible to say just what they have, or do not have]. Quérard, 4:557 (compiled just a decade after this publication appeared) cites only two volumes ("5 livraisons en 2 volumes"), and gets the dates a bit mixed up. Oddly, the title page to Vol. 2, has an imprint dated "1821;" vols. 1 and 3, title pages have the date: "1820." Some of the confusion seems to result from the evidence that this publication was issued in parts -- [called here "livraisons"]. Our copy has ten livraisons. The first leaf of each of the octavo gatherings, marked with a number at the foot of the page, also has the specification of the particular livraison number. At the end of our volume III, at the foot of the final paragraph of the text appears this note: "Fin de la dixième livraison." But it should be noted that we found only one record of an institution holding individual livraisons or issues of the parts of Lardier's "Essai" -- [Médiathèque Draguignan has 3 parts, broché] . Not many of the examples bound into volumes have survived, either. COPAC locates just a single example: [Senate House Libraries, University of London, apparently just volume I]. OCLC appears to have 8 different accession numbers, but this is highly misleading as 5 of the 8 describe only libraries reporting a modern microform facsimile reprint, which appears to have included volume I only: [Goldsmiths' Library, University of London./ Goldsmiths'-Kress no. 22806./ Electronic reproduction./ Farmington Hills, Mich. :/ Thomson Gale]. OCLC does locate five sets printed in the early 1820's on paper. (Northwestern University; Indiana University, Bloomington; Muséum National d'Histoire Naturelle de Paris; Bibliothèque municipale de Lyon; and the aforementioned Bibliothèque Nationale set (2 vols. only). To confuse matters further, it appears that two sets recorded have four volumes -- [Northwestern University, and Bibliothèque Universitaire de Pharmacie. Both have the date "1821" on that fourth title page. Another set in four volumes appears to have been sold at auction in Paris at Alde, June, 2014]. Volume IV, missing in nearly all sets, including ours, was devoted [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Gezicht op Antwerpen - ca. 1820.

      GEZICHT OP ANTWERPEN AAN DE VOORAVOND VAN DE INDUSTRI?LE REVOLUTIEAntwerpen gezien vanaf de Linkeroever ?Vue d?Anvers - Prise de la tete de Flandre?, lithografie uitgegeven te Parijs ca. 1820, in de tijd met de hand gekleurd. Afm. 35,4 x 54,6 cm.De Industri?le Revolutie in de 19de eeuw bracht Antwerpen een enorme uitbreiding van het handelsvervoer en de stad groeide uit tot een wereldhaven. Stoomkracht voerde de vaarsnelheid van schepen op en de nieuwe werelddelen zorgden nu voor de bevoorrading van grondstoffen en dienden tevens als afzetmarkt voor bewerkte goederen.De maritieme groothandel had zijn weerslag op de stad en het omliggende. Voor de ontwikkeling van de handel in de 16de eeuw moesten de oude poorten, bruggen en ruien uit de middeleeuwen verdwijnen. Zo werd ook in de 19de eeuw Antwerpen herschapen, maar op een veel grotere schaal. De stad trok werkkrachten van het land aan en de bevolking groeide. Rondom de stadskern werden allerlei straten en wijken gebouwd, zodat de stad snel uitbreidde. De oude fortengordel, de Spaanse vesten, moesten hiervoor afgebroken worden.De kunstenaar lijkt met de pastorale voorgrond, de koeien, het melkmeisje, de slapende boer, nog even de oude tijd te willen vasthouden. Op een afstand leggen de stoomschepen in de stad aan, terwijl het leven op de Linkeroever nog niet zo snel gaat. Nog even.Prijs: ?2.250,- (incl. lijst).

Octavo, contemporary full straight-grain olive morocco gilt rebacked in brown morocco, marbled endpapers and edges. $1500.Later edition, with two facsimile documents in Volume I.“Everyone with an interest in Johnson is very much in debt to Boswell not only for the years of devotion he invested in the study of JohnsonÂ’s life, but for the uncanny skill with which he conveyed the quality of JohnsonÂ’s personality and his effect on the people about him. If there had been no Boswell, Johnson would have been one of the most famous names in English literature; but that he has become a household name, known to millions who will never read a line of his writing, is due to the chance that brought Boswell into his company” (Wain, 229). The first edition was published in 1791. Bookplate.Scattered light foxing, contemporary boards somewhat rubbed. An attractive set.

        Ivanhoe; A Romance. By the author of "Waverley," &c.

      Printed for Archibald Constable and Co. Edinburgh; and Hurst, Robinson, and Co. 90, Cheapside, London., Edinburgh / London 1820 - Second Edition of "one of the most remarkable novels of the nineteenth century" (ODNB), with all press figures and two typographical errors (p. 89 of vol. II misnumbered 98; first press figure numeral on p. 132, vol. III, in wrong font and printed upside down) conforming to those specified by Todd & Bowden. Complete in three octavo volumes. [4],xxxiii,[1],306; [2],327,[1]; [2]371,[1]pp, including fly-titles but without half-titles and advertisements in vol. III. Beautifully bound in early black straight-grain morocco, covers elaborated framed in gilt and blind, flat spines richly gilt in six compartments (title and volume numbers stamped in gilt to second and fifth), all edges gilt, marbled end papers. A superb set, the handsome bindings tight and square; light, intermittent foxing (heavier to end papers), but generally clean and bright. Todd and Bowden 140Ad. Grolier English 100, 71. For nineteenth century readers, Ivanhoe was perhaps the most celebrated of Scott's novels (according to Leslie Stephen, it was "Scott's culminating success in a book-selling sense, and marked the highest point both of his literary and social prosperity."). Before Ivanhoe, Scott's plots were drawn from Scottish history, but Ivanhoe launched a major change, based on English history and set earlier than any novel Scott had yet written, at the time of the Crusades. First released 20 December 1819, but with 1820 on the title page, the first-issue printing of 6000 copies was increased to 10,000 for this second edition, issued sometime after 15 January 1820 (first edition, third issue) and before 2 March 1820, when Catharina Crawley (possibly Catharina Crawley Boevey, who married Samuel James Ballard on 21 November 1822, in Flaxley, Gloucestershire) singed and dated the title page of our vol. I. "Ivanhoe is essentially a moral work. It is an intense consideration of misogyny and racial oppression, in which the attempted rape of Rebecca the Jewess by the dominant figure of the Norman master race, Brian de Bois-Guilbert, is a powerful symbol of the themes of the novel. Ivanhoe may be set in a distant period, but it has a political modernity . . ."

        Darstellung der fünf Welttheile durch Zufammenfetzung in eine Kugel aehnliche Gestalt, zur leichteren Vorstellung und Gebrauch beim geographischen Unterricht in Schulen über die Beschaffenheit & Eintheilung der Erde.

      Stuttgart: Friedrich G. Schutz, circa 1820. Handcoloured paper globe comprising six gores measuring 170 x 65 mm., wonderfully preserved with the original cord ties within the publisher's folding card case with printed onlays; accompanied by a folding suite of 15 handcoloured lithographic plates measuring 97 x 130 mm. depicting the peoples of the Earth, and a loose engraved card sheet detailing the orbit and poles of the earth. A splendid early nineteenth-century German handcoloured paper globe, here offered complete with the original publisher's ensemble containing a folding suite of 15 plates depicting native peoples of the earth and other educational aids. Two of the plates depict Australian Aboriginal subjects. The globe and its accompaniments are a fine example of late enlightenment publishing for the benefit of children. The publisher Schutz states his plan for a novel educational aid 'to facilitate the introduction and use of geographic education in schools about the nature and classification of the earth'. By presenting the countries of the world as a readily assembled globe to be handled by children, abstract geographical concepts could be grasped with relative ease.The paper globe is significant for the information that accompanies it, especially the suite of 15 folding plates illustrating the peoples of the world. Geographers and ethnologists of the early nineteenth-century were fascinated by the relationship between race, climate and environment. In this wonderful package Schutz presents the regions of the earth as a paper globe alongside skilfully lithographed depictions of its peoples. In this way geographical space is linked to costumes and appearances in a manner comprehensible for children. Two of the plates depict Australian Aborigines, one from Van Diemen's Land and the other from New Holland (specifically, Western Australia), who is curiously illustrated with a bow and arrow. The Pacific Islands are represented by a Tahitian warrior in a tapa wrap brandishing an axe.In addition to the paper globe and folding plates, the folding case contains a loose handcoloured engraved card sheet with several diagrams explaining the orbit and poles of the earth. The card is printed on both sides and includes delicate engravings of the sun's obit and the relationship between the tilt of the earth and her seasons. The card is attached to a printed letterpress sheet elucidating the diagrams in further detail.This example is a rarity, here offered complete in the original publisher's folding case with four detailed letterpress onlays. A folding flap protecting the ethnological portraits features a further fine lithographic plate titled "Künstlicher erd Globus" (reproduction earth globe). This lithograph is a humorous composite, featuring amongst other figures an Ottoman maiden reclining on a divan facing an African beauty flanked by a lion and a crocodile. Paper children's globes are rare by their very nature, and this example preserved in its complete, original condition is an unusual survival. In fine condition.

        Van geneeskunst naar geneeskunde - antieke kopergravure.

      VAN GENEESKUNST NAAR GENEESKUNDESkelet met spierstelsel, anonieme kopergravure vervaardigd rond 1820, later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. (papiergrootte) 180 x 67 cm.Deze levensgrote anatomische prent werd gebruikt in het onderwijs in een tijdperk waarin geneeskunst veranderde in geneeskunde. Het in kaart brengen van de anatomie van de mens werd in die tijd voltooid en verder gesystematiseerd. Hier zien we het menselijk skelet van de rugzijde, met links details van het spierstelsel en rechts van bottenstructuur, daarboven en onder halswervelkolom en voet.Tot laat in de 19e eeuw was kennis van genezen nog beperkt en de kundigheid van de arts hing af van intelligentie, inventiviteit en een portie lef. Onder de beoefening van de geneeskunst trof je alles wat onder de zon leefde. Mensen die oprecht, zorgvuldig en kritisch de kunst van het genezen beoefenden, mensen die met buitenissige ideeën experimenteerden en verrassende resultaten boekten, maar ook mensen die geloofden in hun eigen methoden en middelen, maar twijfelachtige resultaten bereikten: kwakzalvers.In Nederland krijgt geneeskunst pas in 1865 onder Thorbecke, een wetenschappelijke status en worden opleidingen geïnstitutionaliseerd. Lessen in de anatomie vinden dan al niet meer plaats in anatomische theaters, maar in klaslokalen en aan de hand van medische verzamelingen.Prijs: ?2.950,- (incl. lijst, incl. 21% BTW).

      GEZICHT OP ANTWERPEN AAN DE VOORAVOND VAN DE INDUSTRIËLE REVOLUTIEAntwerpen gezien vanaf de Linkeroever ?Vue d?Anvers - Prise de la tete de Flandre?, lithografie uitgegeven te Parijs ca. 1820, in de tijd met de hand gekleurd. Afm. 35,4 x 54,6 cm.De Industriële Revolutie in de 19de eeuw bracht Antwerpen een enorme uitbreiding van het handelsvervoer en de stad groeide uit tot een wereldhaven. Stoomkracht voerde de vaarsnelheid van schepen op en de nieuwe werelddelen zorgden nu voor de bevoorrading van grondstoffen en dienden tevens als afzetmarkt voor bewerkte goederen.De maritieme groothandel had zijn weerslag op de stad en het omliggende. Voor de ontwikkeling van de handel in de 16de eeuw moesten de oude poorten, bruggen en ruien uit de middeleeuwen verdwijnen. Zo werd ook in de 19de eeuw Antwerpen herschapen, maar op een veel grotere schaal. De stad trok werkkrachten van het land aan en de bevolking groeide. Rondom de stadskern werden allerlei straten en wijken gebouwd, zodat de stad snel uitbreidde. De oude fortengordel, de Spaanse vesten, moesten hiervoor afgebroken worden.De kunstenaar lijkt met de pastorale voorgrond, de koeien, het melkmeisje, de slapende boer, nog even de oude tijd te willen vasthouden. Op een afstand leggen de stoomschepen in de stad aan, terwijl het leven op de Linkeroever nog niet zo snel gaat. Nog even.Prijs: ?2.250,- (incl. lijst).

        Magnalia Christi Americana: or, the Ecclesiastical History of New-England from Its First Planting in the Year 1620, Unto the Year of Our Lord, 1689

      Hartford: Silas Andrus, 1820. First U.S. edition. later full brown calf, burgundy gilt lettered spine labels. Some rubbing and scuffing of covers, browning and some foxing throughout, top of title page excised, albeit a nice copy. Quarto. Two volumes, complete. 573 pp.; 595 pp The books were owned by Rev. Herman Landon Vail (1790-1870), each volume signed by him Cotton Mather, FRS (February 12, 1663 – February 13, 1728; A.B. 1678, Harvard College; A.M. 1681, honorary doctorate 1710, University of Glasgow) was a socially and politically influential New England Puritan minister, prolific author, and pamphleteer. Known for his vigorous support for the Salem witch trials, he also left a scientific legacy due to his hybridization experiments and his promotion of inoculation for disease prevention. He was subsequently denied the Presidency of Harvard College which his father, Increase, had held. Mather wrote more than 450 books and pamphlets, and his ubiquitous literary works made him one of the most influential religious leaders in America. Mather set the moral tone in the colonies, and sounded the call for second- and third-generation Puritans, whose parents had left England for the New England colonies of North America, to return to the theological roots of Puritanism. The most important of these, Magnalia Christi Americana (1702), comprises seven distinct books, many of which depict biographical and historical narratives. From his religious training, Mather viewed the importance of texts for elaborating meaning and for bridging different moments of history—linking, for instance, the Biblical stories of Noah and Abraham with the arrival of such eminent leaders as John Eliot, John Winthrop, and his own father, Increase. Highly influential, Mather was a force to be reckoned with in secular, as well as in spiritual, matters. After the fall of James II of England, in 1688, Mather was among the leaders of the successful revolt against James' governor of the consolidated Dominion of New England, Sir Edmund Andros. Mather was not known for writing in a neutral, unbiased perspective. Many, if not all, of his writings had bits and pieces of his own personal life in them or were written for personal reasons. In 1689, Mather published Memorable Providences, detailing the supposed afflictions of several children in the Goodwin family in Boston. Catholic washerwoman Goody Glover was convicted of witchcraft and executed in this case. Robert Calef, a contemporary critic of Mather, considered this book responsible for laying the groundwork for the Salem witch trials three years later: Mr Cotton Mather, was the most active and forward of any Minister in the Country in those matters, taking home one of the Children, and managing such Intreagues with that Child, and after printing such an account of the whole, in his Memorable Providences, as conduced much to the kindling of those Flames, that in Sir Williams time threatened the devouring of this Country. Nineteenth-century historian Charles Wentworth Upham shared the view that the afflicted in Salem were imitating the Goodwin children, but put the blame on both Cotton and his father, Increase Mather: They are answerable... more than almost any other men have been, for the opinions of their time. It was, indeed a superstitious age; but made much more so by their operations, influence, and writings, beginning with Increase Mather's movement, at the assembly of Ministers, in 1681, and ending with Cotton Mather's dealings with the Goodwin children, and the account thereof which he printed and circulated far and wide. For this reason, then in the first place, I hold those two men responsible for what is called 'Salem Witchcraft.' -wikipedia[Sabin 46393. Howes M391 "Most famous 18th century American book."].

        Constitutional Law

      1820. (CONSTITUTION). Constitutional Law: Comprizing the Declaration of Independence; the Articles of Confederation; the Constitution of the United States; And the Constitutions of the Several States Composing the Union. Washington City: Gales and Seaton, 1820. Tall 12mo, original half tan and blue-gray paper-covered boards, uncut and partially unopened; pp. (iv), 1-409, (1). Housed in a custom folding chemise and half morocco slipcase. $4500.First expanded edition of this major compilation of AmericaÂ’s constitutions, featuring printings of the Declaration of Independence, the Articles of Confederation, the federal Constitution, and the constitutions of 23 states—including the 1780 Massachusetts Constitution, the “oldest functioning constitution in the world”—the first collection with the most recent constitutions of Alabama (1819) and Maine (1820), scarce in original paper-covered boards, housed in a custom chemise, slipcase.“Independence destroyed the old legal foundation of the states, and made it necessary to provide a new oneÂ… As early as May 1775, colonies began to apply to Congress for advice to guide them” (Hinsdale, American Government, 64). On May 10, 1776 a resolution was proposed for the “Formation of Local Governments”—one whose preamble by John Adams was seen as directly “manufacturing independence” (Smith, 256). The importance of both the federal Constitution and state constitutions is strikingly evident in Constitutional Law, the first series devoted to fully documenting AmericaÂ’s ongoing constitutional revolution. Herein are printings of the Declaration of Independence, the Articles of Confederation, the federal Constitution, and constitutions of 23 states—documents that “rested on a new foundation, adjusted to a new political system” (Hinsdale, 66). Significantly these state constitutions, where the initial article after the preamble is often a declaration of rights, are “‘a mine of instruction for the natural history of democratic communitiesÂ… The differences between state constitutions and the federal ConstitutionÂ… raise intriguing questions that go to the heart of American constitutionalism” (Tarr, Understanding State Constitutions, 4, 11). This volume contains the pre-revolutionary Charter of Rhode Island, the 1776 constitutions of Maryland, New Jersey, North Carolina and Virginia, the Constitution of New York (1777) and the 1780 Constitution of Massachusetts, which was authored by John Adams and remains “one of the great enduring documents of the American RevolutionÂ… the oldest functioning written constitution in the world” (McCullough, 225). Also within are the 1790 constitutions of Pennsylvania and South Carolina, those of Delaware, Kentucky and New Hampshire in 1792, of Vermont in 1793 and Tennessee in 1796, of Georgia (1798), Ohio (1802), Louisiana (1812), Indiana (1816), Mississippi (1817), Illinois (1818), Connecticut (1818), Alabama (1819) and Maine (1820). Preceded by the 1819 edition with 21 state constitutions, this first expanded edition is the first to contain the “new 1819 Alabama constitution, and the new 1820 Maine constitution” (Matyas). Also featuring an appendix containing federal and state amendments enacted from 1808-16. Published by the “strong journalistic team” of Gales and Seaton, noted publishers of the National Intelligencer, “a leading American newspaper,” and of a major record of congressional proceedings (Mott, 178). Sabin 16133. Shoemaker 856. Matyas 19-02b. Cohen 3014. See Shaw & Shoemaker 47716. OCLC lists 29 copies; including the Library of Congress, American Antiquarian Society, British Library, Yale and Cambridge. Bookplates.Interior with light scattered foxing, slight soiling to boards, chips to spine ends. An extremely good copy of this important constitutional volume, most scarce in original boards.

        Principles of Political Economy considered with a view to their practical application.

      London: John Murray, 1820 - Octavo (212 × 125 mm). Bound in contemporary full sprinkled calf, spine in elaborately gilt-tooled compartments with a new black morocco label, speckled edges. Contemporary bookseller's ticket and ownership inscription, with occasional neat pencil annotations to the text. Spine and corners rubbed, joints repaired, a few light scratches to covers, some light spotting throughout. A very good copy in a contemporary binding. First edition. The book was conceived as a series of tracts rather than a comprehensive and systematic treatise, though Malthus published it to establish his own position against that of Ricardo, with whom he had been having an ongoing debate about the nature of labour, demand and profit. "In his 'Principles of Political Economy', Malthus was proposing investment in public work and private luxury as a means of increasing effective demand, and hence as a palliative to economic distress. The nation, he thought, must balance the power to produce and the will to consume" (DSB). "The Principles had only a limited impact at the time, and was severely criticized by J. R. McCulloch and Ricardo; the latter prepared extensive critical notes. But more recently it has received greater recognition, largely as a result of the comments by J. M. Keynes in the 1930s. Keynes argued that Malthus's theory of effective demand provided a scientific explanation of unemployment, and that the hundred-year domination of Ricardo over Malthus had been a disaster for the progress of economics. Keynes believed that if economics had followed Malthus instead of being constrained by Ricardo in an artificial groove, the world would be a much wiser and richer place" (ODNB).

In July of 1820, Murray published the second volume with the final three American installments.
